The pH of blood is 7.4 and that of saliva is 6.4. what is the difference in pH between these two solutions? How much more Hydronium ion (H3O+) is in the saliva than in the blood.

I need a detailed answer with the formulas if you can. I have a hard time with chemestry

    You're making this much harder than it is. Don't be intimidated by chemistry. The difference is 7.4-6.4 = 1.0, right?

    To convert pH to H3O^+, use
    pH = -log(H3O^+)
    7.4 = -log(H3O^+) and
    6.4 = -log(H3O^+).
    Solve each for H3O^+ and subtract these two numbers to find how much more in one than the other.

    Calculate the hydronium ion consentration and the hydroxide concentration in blood in which the PH is 7.3. Hydronium = [H3O+] = 10-pH or [H3O+] = antilog (- pH) and I got 1.00 x 10^7.3 for both concentrations is this correct?

    this makes absolutley no sense I plug all this into my calculator but I get different results. The hydronium ion concentration can be found from the pH by the reverse of the mathematical operation employed to find the pH. [H3O+] = …
